Has finally arrived with only a few glitches. Though we are only given three maps (two of which are good) the overall experience of the multi-player is great. The new weapons and button layout have a much more fluid feel than the previous Halo title.

The multi-player did, however, bring back reasons why I hate Halo. It isn't the game itself, no; the fault lies solely in the people who play it. Within one unranked match I heard the n-word more times in 10 minutes than I had the whole year.

Don't get me wrong, it isn't without its humorous side. For example ... after getting beaten in a team game there was a lot of Ebonics trash talking coming from the other team, followed by two of them attempted to say the word 'statistics' only to be met with a load of trouble. Obviously simple words and the ability to structure the smallest of sentences is beyond some of these kids who are extremely proud of their ability to play a videogame. In those cases you almost want to name off your real-life achievements (job, education, money, ect.) and see how many they have. Flipping burgers while working the late shift at McDonalds does not count.

Same shit happened to me. I doubt I get Halo 3 when it comes out because it feels just like Halo 2 and I didn't care much for Halo 2.

Laughing I know exactly what you're talking about. I had tons of fun playing Gears of War when it first came out, then it became overpopulated by foul-mouthed, high-pitched 12-year olds and black guys constantly calling me and others "niggah". I wanted to jam a very long Q-tip through one ear and out the other.

After playing some more of the beta it's not bad. But if I do get Halo 3 it'll just be played with people that is on my friends list.
